The best non-surgical facelift: Everything you want to know about Morpheus8 [Sponsored]

Sponsored by The Dermatology Clinic


Morpheus8 is all the buzz in cosmetic circles these days as one of the newest anti-aging treatments on the market. Dubbed as the “non-surgical facelift,” people are curious to know about the benefits, how it works, and the downtime. The Dermatology Clinic is one of the only facilities in Baton Rouge currently offering Morpheus8. Here, they share an overview so you can see if this revolutionary treatment is right for you.

Any skin type or color can benefit from a Morpheus8 treatment, and visible results can be seen within just days of your appointment. Most clients find their most noticeable results after three weeks, but many continue to see improvements for up to three months.

Many men and women experience frustration in regard to their appearance due to acne scars, stretch marks, sun and age spots, hyperpigmentation, and more. The Dermatology Clinic can help address and reduce these aesthetic issues through radiofrequency (RF) microneedling using the state-of-the-art Morpheus8™ device. Morpheus8 can be used on almost any area of the body, including sensitive areas around the eyes and mouth. Some of the most frequently treated areas include the lower face and neck, tightening the area and reducing the appearance of  jowls. This revolutionary procedure can help reduce scarring, improve skin texture and tone, and rejuvenate the skin for a more youthful, healthy-looking, and glowing appearance.

You’ve probably heard of microneedling, a procedure that uses small needles to prick the skin in order to generate new collagen and tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin. Morpheus8 works similar to microneedling, but rather than simply prick the skin, this device also incorporates radiofrequency, which adds heat to promote the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid at a much greater level than traditional microneedling. The Morpheus8 treatment allows for more dramatic results at a much faster rate and may reduce the need for follow-up sessions.

The procedure is relatively quick and easy. After using a topical numbing cream on the patient’s treatment area, a small handheld device is pressed to the skin. This device emits radio frequency waves that generate heat through tiny needles penetrating deep into the dermal skin layer to stimulate collagen and elastin production. Most patients notice improved texture, reduced pore size, and lifting and tightening of the skin and fat below. The whole procedure – numbing and preparations included –takes a little more than two hours.

Morpheus8 is unique because it significantly reduces post-treatment downtime and is less likely than others to cause discoloration. Most patients notice redness and a hot sensation immediately after the treatment that starts to improve after a few hours. A few experience mild swelling the morning after the treatment, subsiding by the third day. You can begin wearing makeup 24-36 hours after the treatment. Plus, the recommended care is pretty basic: avoid direct sun exposure, use a sunscreen and moisturizer, and avoid using new topical or oral medications.
